Buster was published by IPC from 28th May 1960-4th January 2000, and was the last of the company's traditional juvenile humour titles to be cancelled. Originally, it was comprised of a more or less even mix of adventure strips and humour strips, though by the mid 1970s the humour strips had come to dominate. The lead strip, Buster, Son of Andy Capp was about a boy who (as the title implies) was originally intended to be the son of long-running newspaper strip character Andy Capp, though the connection was soon dropped; the strip was later renamed 'Buster's Diary', and for a short time 'Buster's Dream World'. During the course of its almost 40-year run, Buster also incorporated several other cancelled titles including Radio Fun, Film Fun, The Big One, Giggle, Jet, Cor!!, Monster Fun, Jackpot, School Fun, Nipper, Oink! and Whizzer and Chips. Notable strips included Faceache, Kid Kong, The Toys of Doom, Crabbe's Crusaders, Fishboy, Galaxus, the Thing from Outer Space, Charlie Peace, Disappearing Trix, Lazy Bones, Joker, Chalky, Odd Ball, Sweet Tooth, Tom Thug, X-Ray Specs, Ivor Lott and Tony Broke, Junior Rotter, Ginger, Mummy's Boy, Tin Teacher, Boxatricks, Clever Dick, Pete's Pets, Bertie Bumpkin, Kid Gloves, The Leopard from Lime St., Laser Eraser, Teddy Scare, Seeker from Space, The War Children, The Sparrows Fight On, Martha's Monster Make-up, The Runaways, Pete's Pocket Army, Gums, School Belle, Sweeny Toddler and Birdman and Chicken.
